SEND Inspection Pilot Survey Launched

Share your experiences about services for children and young people with SEND

A survey has been launched to understand the experiences of families in Portsmouth about the services they access.

Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) are visiting Portsmouth as part of a pilot inspection programme to look at how services for children and young people aged between 0-25 years old with special education needs and or disabilities (SEND) are delivered.

This is an exciting opportunity to hear your views and learn about your families’ experiences in the city. We don’t need to know who you are as your feedback is completely anonymous. However, it will be used to shape services and identify ways to improve them.

The survey will close at 9am on Wednesday 21 September.

Have your say today!

Useful information

The survey is confidential, and the responses will complement the evidence collected by inspectors during the inspection. Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) do not ask for your name – so you will not be identified from the responses you make.

By continuing with this survey, you consent to the transfer of your information from SmartSurvey to Ofsted. You can view Ofsted’s privacy policy at
